wOwls in the mOss – Reykjavik, Apr 28th

wOwlsinthemOss-130wOwls in the mOss is an interactive media art installation, realtime performance, song and music video. There will be a 10 minute performance at 18:00 during the opening.
It uses Icelandic moss and mobile devices, and is part of the “Fylltu okkar glös með þínum veigum” group exhibit.
wOwlsinthemOss-136A dark, lonely figure is endlessly tapping his device in a desolate, time-broken Nordic urban landscape. A collection of moss at a nightclub laboratory are watching themselves on huge mobile screens. The tapper and the mosses dances a glitch between realities moving at different speeds.
wOwlsinthemOss-137The title wOwls in the mOss is a mashup of the Scandinavian proverb “there are owls in the moss”, an expression to indicate that something’s not as it should. There is something suspicious going on.
wOwlsinthemOss-133Visitors can interact and explore a surreal sonic fauna, and build particle-cloud soundscapes of moss. The installation is battery-powered, one-time only and finishes when devices runs out of power. The mosses are returned to their habitats after the exhibit.
